Porsche 944 LS Project Vinyl RennsportKC
With the craptastic 20″ of snow we got in about 2 days, the shop has slowed down a little on the daily business. It has given us a little time to catch up on some big longer term projects, and make some progress on the LSX at home.
I went back and forth on what to do for bump steer with the lowered cross member and lowered car in general. After reviewing a few options, I decided to go with the Elephant Racing adjustable bump steer kit.
This will allow the tie rods to maintain a parallel relationship with the ground which will keep the car from bump steer issues which are inherent to lowered cars.
Ever since I have been into Porsches, I have always lusted after the Jagermeister 935 that was raced in the late 70’s and early 80’s, specifically the 1978 Max Moritz #8. So this has been the source of this entire project, and that was my obvious choice of livery 🙂 After a long search, I found the reproduction vinyl and went to work!
Obviously the 935 has a little different body work than what I was dealing with, so I swapped a few decals here and there due to size.
And A modified passenger side hood pin assembly installed. Hopefully the weather will get decent enough to get the trailer out of the snowbank so I can haul the car over to Pirello Bros Collision to get the windshield installed. Once that is done, the LSD transaxle goes in and I think we are ready for some road time. The LSD, along with a set of 996TT 8 and 11″ rims I picked up dirt cheap should keep the traction under control.

Nothing matches the theraputic value of measureable progress on an important project. Big congrats for hanging in there.
Wonder what wrenchers without projects do?
